Following a Freedom of Information request by local software developer Sam Easterby-Smith, GMPTE has released what amounts to most of the last decade’s worth of Greater Manchester bus fare table data.
Looking through the information, available for download here, it jolted up some memories of bus routes gone by. Remember the 110 (Manchester to Sale via Princess Road, Northern Moor, Brooklands and Sale Moor) , the 106 (an Arriva route between Manchester and the Airport) or the 146 (Manchester – Moston circular)? We’d forgotten about them until we looked through this data.
The information, understood to be in the public domain, will allow developers to build fare information into public transport information apps. However, as we understand it GMPTE isn’t bound to continue releasing updated fare table information in the future.
